Stoke v CHELSEA: Salomon Kalou facing late fitness test before Potters clash

01 April 2011 12:35
Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti will check on the fitness of Salomon Kalou before choosing his forward line for the Barclays Premier League game at Stoke.

Kalou, who played 90 minutes for Ivory Coast on Sunday, has a slight knock but the Blues' other stars all returned unscathed from the international break.

Doubtful: Kalou has often played second fiddle in Chelsea's strikeforce

That included Yossi Benayoun (achilles), who played the final 19 minutes of Israel's game with Georgia but will not be risked, while Alex (knee) will also continue to build up his fitness.

Provisional squad: Cech, Bosingwa, Ferreira, Terry, Luiz, Ivanovic, Zhirkov, Cole, Mikel, Essien, Lampard, Ramires, McEachran, Kalou, Malouda, Anelka, Torres, Drogba, Turnbull.
